tv Glenn Beck FOX News December 1, 2010 2:00am-3:00am EST
trying to get a $49 blue ray player. black friday gets very rough. >> the story does sound suspicious. lights are blinking and we're closing down shop. we'll see you again tomorrow. make sure to check out our face doos book fan page. follow us on twitter.com. o'reilly factor is next. good night from washington. can be made. they're far apart but maybe not all that far apart. >> glenn: welcome to the "glenn beck program." i have told you for the last probably five years that a perfect storm was brewing. then we started having the meltdown on wall street and tarp started to happen. i told you that the storm was getting stronger and coming closer. the stimulus happened and obama was elected, i told you that the perfect storm was forming and it was now on shore. i have news for you. i have to update our weather conditions. the storm is here.
the weather conditions are changing. your friends can keep ignoring all the danger around, but all they have to do is look out the window and see that things are getting dicey. you are beginning to see the start of the perfect storm for america. now ask a question. is it time to get in the root cellar and protect yourself? have you done it? no. are you ready to baton down the hatches? may i show you the "wizard of oz." at the beginning of "wizard of oz" this is dorothy and she's out and she knows the storm is coming. you will see uncle henry and aunt em. she's like we have to find dorothy. she says we can't wait for her. we have to get in the cellar. she goes down to the cellar. dorothy is left to fend for herself. sometimes this is what has to happen, where everyone is wiped out. those who come to the party
too late, come to the understanding that there is a storm brewing finds themselves sometimes outside while everyone else is in the storm cellar. it's time to start heading for the storm cellar. because the winds are starting to howl. c'mon. ♪ ♪ >> glenn: well, hello, america. i know that sounds kind of spooky, what i just said, but hello, you're at spooky central. perfect storm is you brewing and al-qaeda called it "operation hemorrhage." it's here. it's here. there are so many pressures now converging right now on our country, it is inevitable that we are going to face a pretty big level of pain. the president called it shared sacrifice. but they're not really telling you what ism coming. they're preparing for a new
safety net. the government continues to grow, things are going to collapse. the other choice is massive pay cut. massive cuts in the budget. what will that do? that will stop the economy, because the only one spending money is the federal government, though it's funny money. people will lose their entitlements. hmm, what doesn't sound good either. one way or another, we're in for tough times. the real question is how will america handle it? will the fabric of america hold up under this type of pressure? do you remember i told you about the tower of babel and nimrod made bricks and the mortar. in hebrew, the word "mortar" is materialism. it's what held the bricks together. i fear that is the only thing that is holding our bricks together. is materialism. a lot of enemies in and outside of our government,
our country, are counting on that. we have to change the mortar between us. i have can't be materialism. look at the storm headed our way. we have unemployment. these are all the things that arep happening. these are the things happening, perform storm. unemployment. seiu is counting down the days until the 99ers fall off the unemployment rolls. why would you do that? why is the union counting off the day until they fall off, 99ers? because this is the choice, america. you can either be a pawn or a defender of the republic. you can be a victim or a survivor, a leader. they are creating pawns. we need to create more defenders. i'll get into that later on in the program.
let's go back. unemployment. followed by a lack of trust. right now, only 11% of the american people say they have trust in congress. i'm surprised it's that high. we showed you yesterday with the rest of the media missed with the wikileaks story. this whole thing is designed to destroy what little trust we have left in the institutions and the leaders. this isn't going to just stop with the government. they didn't tell us anything new. they told us what you knew in your gut, that the government is lying to you. what would be the point of telling you this? to destroy the face in the united states of america. abroad and here. no one can trust anyone in the government. that is the message they sent. wikileaks, the next target, according to forbes, the bank, wall street and energy companies.
they are going to show major banks andhey're predicting a major bank inside the u.s. is going to be turned -- what a surprise -- "inside-out." bottom up, top down, inside out. what does it do for you? how will it help you? what does it do to your loans? what about the debt? who knows what is next? what will it do when this information is used to create more pawns? do we trust anyone anymore? you also have a lack of appreciation. why would you have a lack of appreciation? we hear about economic justice. you know what's interesting to me? nobody defines "justice." we have been lured in class warfare, where successful people don't deserve justice. they're vilified, they're punished for their success. i made every dollar myself with my team that i share it with. why am i punished for
success? that's justice? for whom? oh, for people who take it from me and give it to them. that's not robin hood, that's a perversion of the robinhood story. robinhood was stealing the money back from the people the government took it from. the result, when you get things for free, we don't appreciate them. we don't appreciate the things we have. even me. we don't appreciate our country. because it was handed to us. instead, we just long for things that other people have. we never have enough. we shouldn't begrudge millionaires or billionaires. our grandfather would have taught us we could be the next millionaire or bi billionaire. it's america. put this in perspective. poor in america, 97% of them have television sets. 25% of the television sets
are are big screens. that's poverty? 89% have a microwave. 80% have an air conditioning unit. 73% of the poor in america have a car. 64% have a washer. 57% have a drier. we have been sold a lie, that's not enough. how much is enough? what is economic justice? do i need to remind americans what poor really looks like? i got news for you, in other countries, they're not washing their clothes and sitting in air conditioning watching their big screen tv. they're dying. that is poor. i will show you pictures at the bottom of the hour about the great depression. the first pictures we know of, the only pictures that are in color of the great depression. i want to show you picture. i'll get back to it at the bottom of the hour. look at this family. this looks like a sawed off log. like a log cabin.
i don't know what this is. plywood. look at the conditions here. look at this man's shirt. i don't think that was, i don't think that was government healthcare. actually, that might actually be government healthcare. look at the food. i can guarantee you she canned the food, they milked the cow. she made the food, they grew the food, they probably helped. that's poverty. this is history. that is poverty in america. what is poverty in america today? we just want our stuff. watch. >> why are you here? >> to get some money. >> what kind of money? >> obama money. >> where is it coming from? >> obama. >> where did obama get it? >> i don't know. his fans. i don't know. i don't know where he got it from, but he's giving it to us, to help us. we love him. that's why we voted for him. obama! obama!
>> glenn: tiffany put that picture back up of the poverty and the great depression. do you think these people would have lined up for cash and they didn't care? i don't think so. do you know what base salary is for six years of experience? six years of experience in the u.s. army. you're a private in the army. you've been in service of your country for six years. it it's $19,465. what is the poverty level in america? let's say you have a family of four. the poverty level for a family of four is $44,100. by the way, poverty level for one person according to the u.s. government is $21,660.
those guys are in poverty whether it's one person or a family of four. now, people will say well, yeah, but they get government housing. do they? really? government housing. and that makes up this difference? yeah, but they get healthcare. oh, yeah, you mean the healthcare they're now looking to charge our soldiers for. that free healthcare. need i also remind you $175,000 is what a congressman makes. don't talk to me about poverty. don't talk to me about freezing their salaries. these people are risking their lives. these people are getting rich. want to talk about the rich? let's talk about congress, shall we? i don't have a problem with being rich. you earn your money.
these people, they earned their money? really? these people have. i'm guessing you have. next, lack of education. these are amazing stats. we don't even know history. 26% of americans are unaware that america gained independence from great britain. over one-quarter of the population has no idea. well, that probably explains why so many people can be duped into hating the free market system. they have no idea how we got here. how we became the greatest country in history. which leads me right to apathy. do you think anybody is going to go out and vote? do you think anybody is going to stand up and say i really believe in this? why? you don't even know our history. if you don't know what our country is or where we came from, why would you risk anything? why would you care if the system collapse?
why would you care if you took money from the government? people are walking around with blinders on. perfect storm. eroding values. hard work. sacrifice, thrift, honor. truth. god. a nation born out of faith in god. how is that going today? 25% of those under 30 years of age describe the religion as atheist, agnostic or nothing in particular. now as you get older, it goes down. 30 to 40 years old, only 19%. ages 40 to 50, 15%. over 60, less than 10% say that. then the tax dollars funding the wonderful art display. it's christmas at the smithsonian. wonderful -- look it's jesus with ants on him. describe it as the first major exhibition to focus on sexual difference in making of modern american
portraiture. what? you have to be kidding me. what does this have to do with the birth of the baby jesus and why is he now covered in ants? whose values are these? you wonder where there is a breakdown of the family. in "time" magazine they pose this question. i love this. who needs marriage? what is it good for? i don't know. keeping america intact, for one. good to show children how to treat a spouse and others. when you get old it's nice to have a family around to take care of you. people want government to do it. why? why? when did it stop being important to show our kids how to take care of each other? when? when did it become popular to dismiss our parents? they never dismissed us. the biggest lie of the marriage thing is the 50% divorce rate. 50% of people -- really? that's not true. if you start to read the
facts, if you get married at 25, rather than at 18, your chances of divorce drop 24%. if you attend college, even for a day, your chances of divorce drop 13% lower. but today, nearly four in ten people say marriage is just obsolete. is it? the storm is severe. but we'll make it, we will make it as long as we don't have the materialism knitting us together. as long as that's not between the bricks. materialism. we have debt beyond our wildest imagination. we have exhausted military. the media forgot about the men and women in afghanistan and iraq. a lot of americans haven't. they're on the brink. they're on the brink. this has been a decade now. these soldiers, i was with marcus latrell at his wedding. one of the soldiers came
back, he's a navy seal. he had done nine tours. nine. when is enough, enough? unsustainable debt. $14.3 trillion in our debt ceiling. all of this is going on. all of this has happened. instead of preparing for a storm. congress is making the storm stronger. if senate passed the food senate bill. they claim it prevents outbreaks. do we have problem? i'm sorry. i missed all those stories of the outbreaks. the 11% of america who trusts congress will blindly go along with this. this is what the bill really does. it gives the f.d.a. even more power and control. they can demand food recalls instead of requesting it now. thef.d.a. has control over food imports. increase f.d.a. inspection of the food processing plants. gee, i wonder if cass
sunstein who doesn't want you to eat meat could price us out of meat. that way you don't have to pass a law, you just nudge people into that. hmm. why -- well, i know the answer. 25% don't know where we came from. they have no idea we broke away from england. if you don't know who we broke away, you certainly don't know why we broke away. you never want somebody to have that much power. can we afford the $1.4 billion of a new, grand new bureaucracy? why not give the money to the soldiers? what do you say? who are earning just above the poverty line or just below the poverty line. they're also in congress moving on the dream act. the dream act would allow anyone younger than 35 who came to the u.s., they'll be granted legal status. if they agree to go to college or join the military or work in certain other government agencies for two years, oh, that's perfect.
the real concern here is there is no cap on you how many illegal immigrants will eventually gain legal status. another concern, youth who eventually become citizens thanks to the dream act will bring the close relatives, including their parents who originally entered the country illegally, in the u.s. as legal immigrants. may i ask what is this going to cost us? what is this going to do to add all of this to the system? to the perfect storm? every night i come to you and i say there is a storm coming. every night. but i tell you, i'm close to saying time to close the door on cellar, guys. if you're not seeing it yet, you never will. time to start talking to the people who will pay attention and pull their head out and start paying attention.
there is good news. this is the state of the country but it's not who we are. now there are pawns and there are defenders. the question is which is there more of? pawns or defenders? my grandfather used to build chicken houses on the farm. they were the ugliest chicken houses. we were in texas this weekend and i looked at the barns. they were red and identical. they were really nice. i said what are those? the guy said those are chicken houses. i said get out of here! my grandfather, they were ugly chicken houses. why? because he would take old windows from somebody else's barn and old door and at one point he put doors up and he put the tar paper over the doors and nailed it in place. that was the roof of the chicken house. nothing matched in any of his chicken houses. why? he did that because one thing i learned from him is you
have to make due with what you have. when you are in a situation like this. you have to put a roof over your head. or you have to put a roof over the chicken's head or safe your country -- save your country. you have to look at what you have and use what you do have. make do with this. well, what do we do with this? by the end of the show, i'll show you how you can reverse this. on thursday night, i'm going to be out in pittsburgh. i am doing a live show and they're beaming it via satellite throughout movie theaters throughout the country. it's to go over this book which i worked long and hard on. over a year. i don't know how many people we had working on it. maybe 30 people. this is the beginning of the answer. i want to have a little town
hall meeting with you. so if you happen to have the time and you can afford to the go to the movie theater on thursday night, will you please join me? i'm going to have town hall meeting. i'd like to explain what do we do, what do we do. before we break one more thing that i'm going to add to this list. i'll do it next.
>> glenn: there is another piece of the perfect storm. this is what is happening to our country. this is going to be the solution in a minute. but there is another piece. because this really is, this is the enemy within. the enemy without, fighting for quite some time, it's al-qaeda. they vowed to destroy us by 1,000 paper cuts, calling it "operation hemorrhage." bleed us to death. there is something you need to understand. they don't mean body count. they don't mean our actual blood. they're not doing that. they're now going to cause maximum economic damage. look at their words. our objectsive not maximum kill but cause hemorrhage in the aviation industry, industry that is so vital for
trade and transportation between u.s. and europe." why? why? because they understand that our mortar is materialism. we'll kill each other if we take our stuff away. can't let that happen. they realized they didn't defeat us militarily and our main weakness is the economy. they can pit each other -- everybody is pitting us against each other. the same way. rich versus poor. they'll keep cutting until there is nothing else to cut anymore. they won't stop until every last stop of the economic blood is dripped out. they are not the only ones who are cutting at us this way. we've shown you the anti-free market radicals gone from afraid to show their face to being around the white house and administration and actively seeking to crumble the remarket system and rebuild it as a socialist utopia. i don't know, i don't know why anybody in the media doesn't find this important. they'll talk about the military and there is another
timothy mcveigh some place, but they will never talk about these people. why? why? more of the like-minded people showed up in l.a. this month. it was the party of liberation and socialist conference. nobody is showing this on tv. let me show you the highlights. listen. >> we must kill capitalism or it will kill us. the working class will fight. the question is will there be a revolutionary party present with trained cadres to take advantage of that struggle? take advantage of that moment? and build for a fight. >> from the south to the trailer park, the ghetto, barios and prison, organize to unite on the class interest and overthrow the capitol. >> glenn: they are looking for pawns! in the trailer parks and the prisons. and they're going to use
class warfare. we've got our administration pitting the poor against the rich. you have people on the streets that they are connected with. bottom up, top down, inside out. you get as many pawns as you can. we told you on the program this administration is using a lot of tactics first devised by the weather underground. they use the same strategy in the 1960s. except they didn't do rich versus poor. instead they used race. race. to get their pawns. but that's being played as well. this is from the 1960s. "blacks have been oppressed and held in inferior social position as people. they have a right to act on their common destiny as people apart from white interference." by the way, in 1970, if you were black in america you had a better chance of getting college education in america than white man did in great britain. did you know that? why? that's 1969. let me show you this. today, marxists, they're not
hiding anymore. marxist in north carolina told the technician online website, "it's power we have got to change. it's not just giving stuff out. it's about power. that is our struggle. a fight for power. "right now we see who all the power in the country, the corporate elite which is mainly white men." there you got it. where does that leave us? it leaves us here. pawns versus defenders. not defenders of capitalism, but defenders of freedom. the defenders of the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. america, ask your friends and neighbors. what do we progress past? what is a higher ideal than all men are created equal and endowed by creator with certain inalienable rights. life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. tell me what is a grander idea than that. which one are you?
you may say you're not a pawn. be very careful. are there enough defenders? are there more pawns? they need pawns. why? they're wildly outnumbered. how many al-qaeda numbers are there do you think in the country? i know we left the borders open for years. how many communists are there? 5,000, 100,000? let's say there is 5 million. that leaves 300 million people to defend. we outnumber them. they lose, except, except if you are a pawn. and you're used. remember what he said? are there enough to organize and capitalizen it? we lose if there are too many
pawns. how do you make pawns? you make sure there is a lack of education. why was it illegal to help a slave learn how to read? because if they could read, they could figure it out. too many people, too many people don't have any idea we gained our independent from great britain in 1776. too many people get their news from comedy central. did you ever hear your mother or father say oh, i get my news from johnny carson? that's a comedy show. this is an opinion show. there is news on this network as well. know the difference. we have to change possible pawns to defenders. so how do we do that? i'll show you next. >> america is --
>> glenn: i was thinking about my grandmother and my grandfather. you have to make due with what you have. i showed you pictures at the beginning of the show of the great depression. these are the only color pictures of people in the great depression. they're in the library of congress. it's pretty amazing. people come to life in color poe toes. i've never seen color photos of the great depression before. people look real now. i want to show you a couple. show this couple, please. look at this. look at how proud she is. look at the confidence. look at the way she is standing. look at her face. she's proud. she's strong. now look at this woman at the dinner table. look at her.
this is poverty. look at her nails. this is all food i'm guessing none of it came from the store. i don't know if poverty exists anymore. look at the wall. the table didn't come from the store. look at his shirt. i bet you, these two both were outside with the kids. growing all this stuff. she obviously made it and she cooked it too hot, but what does the kitchen look like? she canned this food. none of it came from the store i'm guessing. this is poverty. this is why our grandparents said to us, learn to mend. learn to sew. learn to can. learn to grow food. because they saw this. we haven't. we think of poverty as not enough money for cable or high-speed internet. no. this is poverty.
here is what is truly amazing. these are the people that won world war ii and built america into what it is. we have been feasting off of their labors for 70 years. they built it and we're just using it all up. my grandfather had the mismatched chicken houses. it wish i had pictures of them because they were ugly chicken houses. but he used scraps from everywhere else. he made due with what he had. the reason i tell you this story is because these are the problems that we have in america now. we will see this kind of poverty again. this is kind of poverty again. we might, even if we change our ways. we might see this kind of poverty. but it's not going to tear us
apart. there are things we can do to fix. there are some things we can't fix. i can't big unemployment and neither can you. i can't fix the debt and neither can you. overstretched military, i can't fix. or can i? take a look at these. the lack of trust. what have i been saying for a year? be honest in all of your business dealing. remember the 40-day and 40-night challenge? please take it. we've got to change the mortar between the bricks. never tell a lie. the reason why wikileaks can make such headlines and why everyone is running scared is because people aren't trustworthy. be trustworthy in your own life. be trustworthy. the eroding values. how do we fix that?
40 day and 40 night challenge. lack of education. want to fix that? it fixes apathy and lack of education. read this. read this. "5,000 year leap." read it. read it. read history. read the real george washington. once you start to learn history, you will stumble on a word or history that describes a dinner table just like that. and you will realize how lucky we really are. you don't have to go to africa to see poverty. you can go to mexico. you can go to our past and possibly our future. read. we need to fix education. i had a guy, harvard, say this should be a textbook in my school. it won't be because i'm too politically incorrect. there is 50 pages of foot notes in there. i made it because you have to restore the truth.
you notice no one has taken the book apart and say it's full of lies. why? they can't. 50 pages of footnotes. the truth. we must take our -- the truth, we make take it. and we must plant it in our children. children are clay pots, the place we have to hold the seeds of the republic. there is a storm that is now on shore and the winds are starting to pick up. the most valuable hims you have. you know this from 9/11 are the kids and their future. their future is tucked away in the books of our past. if we haven't learned about our founders, because we haven't lived their dream in about 100 years. how are we going to restart it? teach them what we need because they will plant the seeds and it will grow again. the military is at the brink. you don't think we can fix
this? the military is at the brink. we can. here is what i want you to do. adopt a military family. not just for christmas but year round. if somebody in the audience is already doing that, contact us. i'll put your website on a screen. it's 9-12 group want to do that, contact us. i'll spread the information. the best way to help them is have them not worry about the families here. we need to send a message to the family, we got you. we got you. what is the erosion of values mean? erosion is an interesting word. it happens when the top soil blows away or the rains come and the soil washes that. that's erosion. how do you stop it? well, the reason why we had the dust bowl is because there weren't trees. not enough trees. it all started to blow off.
>> glenn: i want to show you something. rabbi lapin is a good friend of mine. he has been teaching me a lot about the wisdom of hebrew and the scriptures in hebrew. there is so much lost to us. my apologies to everyone in israel and most of new york, i am going to butcher this. this is passover. this is the word p esach, hebrew word for "passover." but what this actually means is talking mouth. don't worry, i'm going to get to this picture in a second. you want to figure out how to solve things? look at this. this table has the answer. so does the story of passover. passover. here it is. it means talking mouth. at dinner, they have, they ask four questions. and how do you say it,
tiffany? haggadah. four questions. haggadah. it means "the telling." talking mouth, the telling. matza, is the bread. here it is. matza is the bread of answers. now, this is pi-hochirof. that is the first camp site where the israelites left, when they left egypt, they went to pi-ha chirot, the first camp site. what that means is the mouth of freedom. are you seeing a pattern here? talking mouth. the telling. the bread of answers and the mouth of freedom. this is where they first went. now what is this?
that is either midbar or midaber. it can be read both ways. one means desert. if you pronounce it one way it means desert. if you pronounce it the other way and it means "talking." i was in my car over the weekend with my kids. we got in the car. "dad, let's put a movie on." i said no movies. "can i play a game on the iphone?" no, no iphone. may i tie this and this -- i don't think you need much é;çwwómçnh@ox÷ñú
>> glenn: we're trying to find answers for the country, how do we fix it? time to close the doors on the root cellar. and it's time to strengthen those people who do get it. the secret here is talking. talking to each other. this is the story of passover. talking. talking where? the picture of the family in the great depression, that is the answer. at the dinner table. no matter what it looks like.
at the dinner table. the illinois study of 120 boys and girl ages 7 to 11, those who did well in school did spent time eating meals with their family. another study found children eating dinner with their families five times a week were the least likely to take drugs, feel depressed or get in trouble. eating at the dinner table. which brings me to this. i want to show a picture of my dinner table. this is my kitchen table. this is actually up now, i'm selling for charity -- i'm getting rid of a lot of stuff. this is in my kitchen, now at upillar.com. you can see on the back of each chair this says forgiveness, honor. do you have a picture of me with one of them? here. they're all painted. we had an artist paint the backs of all the chairs. the family, we micked the different things that we wanted, that we felt were important. i was always in the
forgiveness chair. you need to get in the forgiveness chair, dad. we need to start eating. we need to start talking. we need to start living the values. teaching them to our children. because they are watching us. by the way, if you want to see some of the stuff that i'm selling out of my house for charity, you can go to upillar.com now. that's where you can get the dinner table and -- i mean like a ceramic chicken. it's weird. upillar.
